       Additional Information  
     
      In this witty paranormal adventure/romance, each chapter alternates perspective between an elder vampire and a young human girl as they navigate the difficulties of addiction and desire; the perils of zombies and vampires; and struggles with abuse, morality and? college.

    Volume 1 - Fatal Infatuation:
    Felicity is quiet, shy and prone to self doubt. Going away to college is an opportunity to mature into a confident young woman; but her new beginning turns out to be more of an adventure than she bargained for when she finds that her new school is plagued not by bullies, but vampires!
    Cain is a man who displays quiet confidence and inner strength even as he struggles to overcome the sins of his past. Centuries ago he was reborn as a creature of the night - a vampire. Surprisingly he found that in losing his life he gained his faith and a purpose. His mission: find and educate hostile vampires to live in peace with humans; teach them discipline to control the supernatural presence within. But after meeting Felicity his most difficult task lies in controlling himself.

    Volume 2 - Lost Reflections:
    Felicity has helped her friends to escape Sindy and her evil coven, but cannot divine the motives of Cain, the vampire who captured first her gratitude and then her heart. The historical account of his past and how he became a vampire is enthralling and frightening. She must decide whether he really is the gentle and sincere man that he seems, in desperate need of love and understanding in his fight against his own vampire nature, or if his thirst for her blood is a driving force too strong for their love to conquer. How will she ever truly know if the addictive venom in his kiss is clouding the judgment of her mind? Her heart has already been lost to him; will she lose her life as well?

    Volume 3 - Evolving Ecstasy:
    Felicity is unlike any human Cain has known before. She treats him as an equal, a man worthy of friendship, respect and even love. She embodies qualities of gentleness and loving trust that he has never found among his own kind. This makes her far more desirable to him than any creature of darkness could ever be. Is her trust in him only the foolishness of a young girl in love, unjustified?
    Cain is all too conscious of the fact that the venom of his bite would give him a connection to her unequaled by any other and protect her from hostile vampires, but it would give him a measure of psychic control over her as well. He could make Felicity into a vampire, to accompany him in his quest to help others and abate his loneliness. But is his desire for companionship worth the loss of her life?
